How can technology be used most effectively to support and assess student learning?
I believe that technology can be used to make learning interesting. It can get the students away from the textbook and paper type learning and into the higher order thinkings. Students learn better when they are interested in the way they are learning. Technology will also help the students move into the future by giving them the tools they need to use when they are adults with their jobs. As a teacher of students with learning disablilites, I believe that using the different techniques that have been taught in this unit, will give my students an advantage they didn't have before.
I am still a bit shaky as to how to use the technology for assessing a student other than monitoring student progress through wikis or blogs. I like the idea of creating questionares for daily checkpoints, however, I am not familiar with how to use them.
